The Master’s in Science in Physics aims to:

  • convey knowledge of classic and modern physics to underpin the development of explanatory models and the understanding of a vast range of phenomena.
  • provide mathematics and computational tools, fundamental for formulating and quantitatively analysing problems and models
  • train students in experimentation, data analysis, various forms of instrumentation, techniques of measurement, the conceptualisation and design of experimental projects
  • deliver practice in theoretical scientific investigation or professional experience as a physicist in a business environment
  • prepare students to continue their academic studies in a doctoral program in physics, physics engineering, other areas of engineering or in any of a number of pluridisciplinary degrees (biophysics, environmental science, resource management, etc)
  • prepare students for the exercise of higher level technical positions and those in research and development in governmental organisms, in the private sector or as self-employed specialists. Other sectors include governmental laboratories, universities, research institutes, schools, quality control, hospitals, financial service sector, banking and insurance, industry, IT businesses.
